I didn’t post yesterday because I took a day off to spend in Cardiff with my brother, and we walked 12 miles and were both completely knackered by evening. It was a really good day, which was nice because it’s his birthday this week and that was one of his treats for the said birthday. We spent the morning in the town centre, then in the afternoon walked to the Bay area and wandered around at the water’s edge a bit.
I had a good, well behaved lunch at Wetherspoons and then we each had a huge and unhealthy Five Guys milkshake (imagine getting a massive bowl of ice cream and allowing it to melt before drinking it through a straw and you’re in the right ball park)
It was a lovely day, much better than the average Monday at work (to say the very least) and it was almost physically painful going back to work today. Although not as painful as me feet were after the 12 miles yesterday.
Today was unbelievably tedious. I don’t like working in IT and I wish I could think of something else to do sometimes. Other times I just wish I could skip ahead to retirement with enough money for spontaneous days out at my leisure. Today is the second kind of day. I didn’t walk to the station and I’m OK with that given how sore my feet were yesterday.
Breakfast: overnight oats with raspberries. I forgot the protein powder so added some Greek yogurt instead, which wasn’t as filling as usual.
Lunch: corn chowder. Should have been with a slice of GF bread, but I forgot the bread too. Are you sensing a theme? I wasn’t really sentient this morning while packing my bag for work.
Dinner: rump steak with cheesy spinach and mushrooms
Snacks: Smaller portion of Greek yogurt than planned; protein bar to make up for the lost protein powder; fruit
